  • Infinitive and supine are rarely (if ever) used, and may be considered archaic. Skall is an older or more formal spelling for the present tense.
  • kommer att may also be used to denote a future action, but while it denotes something inevitable (something absolutely certain), ska refers to something which is required, intended, or a promise. Compare also bör, which is a (very) strong recommendation, but not without possibility to wiggle out of; and måste (must) which is used when there is a compelling need to do something:
